MVO, FEDIOL, COCERAL, Het Comité and UNISTOCK have updated their brochure on pesticide management for farmers and storage companies in non-EU countries.
The previous version dated back from 2014. The update was necessary in view of recent developments in the EU and to bring the attention of farmers/storage organisations to some current specific pesticide issues. Click here for the current brochure, in English.
MRL changes in the EU can be extremely disruptive and therefore such a communication tool is very important. This brochure is a tool to be used for outreach outside EU, upstream in the chain, when discussing with farmers and storage organisations in third countries to raise awareness on pesticide residues on oilseeds and their potential impact for EU supplies.
In the coming period, the brochure will be translated in different languages and subsequently distributed to third country missions to the EU, via the Dutch agricultural attachés network and farmer/trader organisations in the different countries. The translated versions will be available on the websites of each association which coordinated the brochure.
